It's interesting to re-read the Kennedy Center's October 2004 press release announcing the Kirov's "Corsaire" engagement, coming up next week. 

[i]ENGAGEMENT REPLACES DANCE THEATRE OF HARLEM IN THE 2004-2005 BALLET SERIES


I just read this in a posting having to do with Kirov/Corsaire. I know a bit about recent DTH problems, but had the impression that things were getting better. Anyone know the story behind (and timeframe) behind this cancellation? Or prospects for a return next year?

DTH was one of my favorite companies when residing in NYC -- and Arthur Mitchell (whom I watched long ago with NYCB at City Center) is, in my book, one of the finest dancers, ambassadors, company leaders, and gentlemen in American ballet.

While DTH's school is running again, the company is, I am pretty sure, still on "hiatus."
